An Excess of Expression: Multimodal Pedagogy in the Humanities

updated: 
Wednesday, August 9, 2023 - 2:04pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

When students are given the opportunity to use more than one mode in learning, they are taking a multimodal approach to thinking critically. Multimodality, first addressed by Kress and van Leeuwen (1996), is meaning that is made through multiple representations and communications systems. This session allows the presenters to answer the question: “What happens when students use more than one mode to demonstrate understanding of concepts, texts, and/or literature? While multimodal is a more recently coined term, organizations like The National Council of Teachers of English have traditionally proposed such learning as demonstrated in Kist’s 2011 English Journal article “From Queen Mab to Big Boy: A Century of “New” Literacies.”

NeMLA 2024 roundtable: Shaping Poetry in the University Classroom

updated: 
Tuesday, July 25, 2023 - 12:17am
Northeast Modern Language Assosiaction
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

How do contemporary teaching practices shape “poetry” as a genre? In recent years, the new lyric studies has brought to light how Anglo-American university instruction instilled lyric reading as the dominant practice of the 20th century, and in pedagogical terms, the new lyric studies can defamiliarize the protocols of close reading and formalist analysis that promise a standardized poetry classroom. At the same time, critics such as Alan Golding, Natalia Cecire, and Kimberly Quiogue Andrews consider the academic institutional forces at play in the production and reception of difficult, experimental, and avant-garde poetries.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 15, 2023

Ever since the early days of applied linguistics, LSP studies, and functional approaches, the notion of text genre has been pervasive in translation studies. However, it is only in recent years that generic features and their treatment in translation have gained a more prominent position among the researchers’ interests (e.g. B.J. Woodstein, Translation and Genre, Cambridge University Press, 2022).

NeMLA 2024: Pedagogical Surplus in the Socially Just Classroom

updated: 
Tuesday, July 11, 2023 - 3:59pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

The work of creating a socially just classroom is often one of balancing a pedagogical surplus of initiatives, directions, and possibilities. Expanding the literary canon, pushing back against white supremacist norms of classroom discourse and production, and creating accessible assignments, materials, and activities all involve research, restructuring, and integration that can be labor-intensive and potentially overwhelming. Additionally, instructors often have to balance between the goals of their own classroom and institutional imperatives, ensuring students gain the preparation and cultural capital that will enable them to succeed in classrooms with traditional academic expectations.

NeMLA 2024: Boston, March 7-10, Sheraton Back Bay

This session is a roundtable (3-10 participants give brief, informal presentations of 5-10 minutes each, and the session is open to conversation and debate).

Current directions in composition and rhetoric scholarship—including labor-based contract grading, ungrading, experiential learning and/or service learning, critical language awareness, antiracist pedagogy, translingualism, and asset-based pedagogies—are converging to make the classroom a more inclusive, welcoming space for all learners. When we consider how these different approaches play out with multilingual learners, though, we learn more about our students, our texts, our classrooms, and ourselves.

CFP Roundtable: Democracy and the Crisis in the Literature Survey Course

Monday, June 12, 2023 - 11:56am
**MMLA - Cincinnati**
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2023

As the “Crisis in the Humanities” continues to witness a decline in all things humanities courses throughout post-secondary curricula under the echoing waves of COVID, teachers of English survey courses are left to do some cleaning up with regard to what we teach as far as the surveys go. In addition to the COVID slope, the number of English majors continues to wane, and some colleges are even restructuring semester scheduling. When the dust settles, where does that leave the last vestibule of the formal introductory map to English studies, the venerable “survey course” – the one, staunch and steadfast bastion of the once bustling English departments?

In the past decade, an increasing number of colleges and universities have added elements of intercultural and global awareness to their discipline, degree, and course outcomes. Whether titled “intercultural awareness” or “global citizenship,” “intercultural competence” or “global awareness,” these new focal points center on a more international, cross-cultural understanding of the world and its interactions. The American Association of Colleges and Universities, for example, has generated a “Global and Social Responsibility Initiative” that articulates three main outcomes for students in the 21st century:

1.) Become informed, open-minded, and responsible people who are attentive to diversity across the spectrum of differences.

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 15, 2023

Call for Proposals:  

Many universities, departments, programs and/or faculty have developed their own policies about the use of AI in the classroom. Some advocate for banishing it completely, while others advocate for embracing it completely. Still others are not quite sure what it can do and whether they should embrace it or not. If banishing AI from the writing classroom, how is that monitored? If embracing AI in the writing classroom – what does that look like? Your research on this topic is valuable to all of us.

Conversations about artificial intelligence and writing—largely involving ChatGPT—range from excitement to existential dread. Writing about AI has been eclipsed by worrying about writing with AI. Is AI a tool or a threat? A friend or foe? Can AI transcend either/or? What should universities do now that AI has arrived? What about instructors and students? How will AI change classrooms? What policies must be created? What changes will be arriving in education, news, politics, or industry? What will we find at the intersection of AI and writing?
